It is with much regret that we must cancel LANified! 27: BuyBack. We simply did not get enough prepays for it to work out.
By the time you read this, those that prepaid for the LAN should have received their refund. If you did not get your refund, please contact BloodyIron on STEAM directly ( http://steamcommunity.com/id/BloodyIron/ ).
We did not expect this outcome to happen. We anticipated that DotA 2 would be a lot more popular than this, as we have seen in the past. However, despite 4 months of promotions, and other strong efforts to draw gamers to the event, in the end, not enough tickets sold. As it stands right now, we do not have sufficient confidence in DotA 2 to be worth running tournaments for, due to the lack of interest we have seen.
That being said, we did see a pretty good response to the CS:GO 2v2 Wingman tournament, so we are likely to incorporate that into near-future event designs.
We're sorry that we have to do this, but we really had no choice. We want to thank those that prepaid for the event, as we greatly appreciate your support, and we hope that we can see you at one of our future events.
In under two weeks we have our next event, LANified! 27: BuyBack. Our 2-day LAN party featuring DotA 2 5v5 and CS:GO 2v2 Wingman tournaments.
Not only that, we want to do what we can to get more people to come to the LAN! So what can we do about that? Well, we're going to extend prepay!
Prepay was to close 10pm Monday Mar 12th, but instead we're going to extend prepay to 10pm Friday Mar 16th!
But BloodyIron, what if I still need a hand finding/forming a team?

We just wrapped up our latest LAN party last weekend, but we're not done just yet!
We here all kinds of feedback from all kinds of gamers, and one thing we hear all the time is they want MORE. So... we're going to give you MORE. But more what?
LANified! 27: BuyBack
- Adding CS:GO Wingman 2v2 Main Tournament
LANified! 28: Rebound
- Adding League of Legends 5v5 Main Tournament
Each of these tournaments will have CASH prizing, and are not meant to replace any other tournament! As in, we will still be running CS:GO 5v5 tournaments too, but at other LANs. Rules and formats have not yet been announced, but will be soon.
There are so many gamers, all around us, enjoying all kinds of gaming. We want to run awesome events for so many gamers! We hope that you join us at our LAN parties, and have a blast.
So we found a power cable that we think someone left behind. We suspect it may have been someone from the West Esports team. It's a standard computer power cable.
So, if you want it back, just contact BloodyIron on STEAM : http://steamcommunity.com/id/BloodyIron/
